The other day, I was in a business district and I noticed someone had an extremely expensive and nice car, but it was dirty, it had bird crap on it, and the rims and tires had soot like material on them. I thought to myself how can someone own such a nice car and leave it so dirty? Yes, I wasn’t in the best section of town, and a very clean car might attract the wrong element, but it still didn’t make any sense to me. In many regards, and remember that this is coming from someone who was previously in the car washing industry, I believe failing to wash your car is completely disrespectful. Okay so let’s talk about this for second shall we?
After all, you might ask; who is a disrespectful to? You are disrespecting yourself, are you disrespecting your coworkers, or are you disrespecting your family? Well, I’d like to talk to you about three other items, without mentioning the previous. You see, I believe it is disrespectful;
- To Your Car
- To Other Drivers
- To The Value of Money
You are disrespecting your car and in this case it was a black Ferrari. It is disrespectful to the brand name, the auto manufacturer, and anyone else who owns a car like that. In a way it disrespects other drivers, because you are making them look at a dirty automobile that should be quite clean. Other drivers may be car enthusiasts, and to be so disrespectful to a car like that also disrespects those who care for that type of an automobile. Further, I would submit to you that disrespects the value of money.
Indeed, I estimated at car to be worth about $200,000 or so, due to its model type and year. Even if you are wealthy beyond the norm, it is highly disrespectful to the value of the all mighty dollar not to clean the car of that caliber. It’s almost as if you are saying; “money isn’t important, and I often use money to light my fire place.”
All of this is not even mentioning the fact that it is disrespectful to the people in the auto detailing and car wash industry. You see, if you have a $200,000 automobile and you are not keeping it clean, you are depriving people of their job and livelihood. That may sound a little over-the-top to you, but coming from someone who was in the auto cleaning industry, I did felt disrespected when I saw that dirty automobile. Think about this and consider it.
